Lenovo’s Vibe X3 gets certified: boasting a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM and 3,500 mAh battery


Lenovo is going all-out, releasing a bunch of phones in a short span of time, ala PHAB Plus and VIBE Shot – two phones that have since hit the Malaysian market with only a month a part from each release. Rolling on those releases, the unannounced Lenovo device (possibly camouflaged to actually be the Vibe X3), has shown itself in certification associations in Malaysia and China.

There’s still some uncertainty surrounding the whole matter though, as the supposed successor to the Vibe X2 had already been seen on TENNA’s site; only carrying a different spec sheet and additional “Vibe” branding on the back.

Luckily the newest report has some backing – benchmarked carrying a 5.5-inch Full HD screen (1920 x 1080), a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and 3GB of RAM. It’ll also have 64GB of internal memory (no mention of expandability), a 21-megapixel camera and finger-print sensor combo on the back, while upfront it receives an 8-megapixel snapper. Overall, it is quite a huge step up from its former Vibe X2.

Cellular connections will be managed by a dual-SIM LTE enabled slot, while the device runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and is powered by a huge 3,500 mAh battery; fitting, as Lenovo has a knack for putting large batteries in their devices.

Since Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola and the announcement that they plan to dissolve their Mobile division to sell under the Motorola name, their design language has shifted – as you can tell from the photos, the speaker grills and less aggressive curves tell the tale.


The same device has already been spotted in the wild, at a 2015 Chinese Telecommunications Expo, no less; so it definitely exists, but no confirmations of specs are to be seen.

When will we see it being released and what specs will it carry? Your guess is as good as ours, but it’ll be soon enough, if the certification appearances are anything to lead on. We’ll be sure to keep everyone updated as we know more.
